Who is he with voice unblest,
That calls me from the bed of rest?

’Tis the voice of the sluggard, I hear him complain:
“You’ve waked me too soon—I must slumber again.”
A little more sleep, and a little more slumber.

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
Proverbs, Chap. vi. Ver. 6.
